Losing a loved one is never easy, but when someone you depended on is taken in a tragic workplace accident it can be difficult to know how to move forward. At the Marc S. Dorman Law Firm, we represent individuals and families in the Baltimore, Maryland, community who have lost someone due to a workplace injury or occupational illness, helping them secure the compensation they need to move forward.
Workers’ compensation provides death benefits to relatives of a deceased worker who were wholly or partially dependent on that worker. These benefits can include funeral expenses and weekly payments based on a percentage of the deceased’s wages.
Typically, a spouse is eligible to collect lifetime benefits, which only end upon his or her death or remarriage. Dependent children can collect benefits until age 18, or until age 23 if they are enrolled in school.
If you have lost a family member due to a workplace injury, you don’t have to go through this process alone. A seasoned workers’ compensation lawyer can protect your rights and advocate on your behalf, helping you get the financial support you need. At the Marc S. Dorman Law Firm, we will guide you through all aspects of your case with personal attention and service. We can even help you claim pensions and navigate veterans’ benefits.
